Words Matter – Collaborative Language and Communication

Autism is a complex issue – one that intersects with many other complicated social issues. The complexity of this conversation and the diversity of the groups concerned means that dialogue can be difficult at times, and the importance of said dialogue requires that we recognize both a need for clarity and a need for sensitivity to each other’s perspectives. In this vein, it is necessary to create a shared language that will ensure a productive, positive discourse, respectful of all relevant parties. This document endeavors to create this collaborative language and communication in the field of autism.
